Weekly Photography Challenge: 'Q' - Quarters

This week's photography challenge was an object starting with the letter 'Q'.  We we felt it was appropriate to go with a good 'ol American quarter for our photograph, and jeez we should have picked another object - like quarterhorse.  (Or you can insert here - 'We almost started playing the drinking game quarters after this assignment!')  Have you ever tried to take a picture of a spinning quarter with a macro lens before?!  Testing our understanding of our macro lens and the ability to freeze action or end up with a slight blur at that level was actually quite interesting this week.

Using our DIY Light Tent, we put a piece of South Dakota granite in the base of the tent and spun the quarter around on that.  It was a great way to get a little more practice with our new Canon EF 100mm f/2.8L IS USM Macro Lens .
